The Doctors: Princess Photo Shoot Inspired Teen With Cancer
Andrea, 17, and her sisters Sophia and Mariana have always been incredibly close. In the winter of 2015, Andrea was having trouble sleeping because of neck pain. An x-ray revealed a tumor in her chest and a biopsy led to a diagnosis of Hodgkins Lymphoma. Andrea immediately started crying, thinking about losing her hair and even the chance to be “normal.” From then on, she decided that her diagnosis was only going to be a phase of her life, not the end of it. She was determined to get through it the best she could, without letting it slow her down. That’s exactly why she chose to do a photo shoot as a princess, despite having no hair.
